How accurate are doctor pregnancy tests?

A year and test at the doctors office is the same accuracy as good over-the-counter pregnancy tests at the drugstore, however, blood tests at the doctors office are much more accurate than urine tests at both the doctors office or at home. With that said, blood tests can produce a false negative if it is taken too early in the pregnancy! it happened to me! so if you think you may be pregnant and the blood test comes back negative don't drink or take any medications treat your body as if you are pregnant until you have another test and talk to your doctor.

Can pregnancy be detected by a urine sample?

Yes, but this method is not accurate until at least two weeks after conception. Alternative methods are through blood tests, home pregnancy tests (which also uses your urine stream), and a less accurate way would be through symptoms. If pregnancy is not suspected but a doctor does an ultrasound,X-ray, etc, this can detect pregnancy as well but this won't be done to determine pregnancy alone.

Is blood pregnancy test more accurate than urine?

A serum (blood) pregnancy test is not necessarily more accurate than a urine test, but results may be obtained sooner in the pregnancy with a serum test for hCG, the hormone that signals pregnancy. Both methods test for the presence of human chorionic gonadotrophin which is present in the blood about 48 hours after implantation has occurred. It takes about 4 days for hCG to show up in detectable levels in the urine. Urine tests and serum tests are both highly accurate (about 97%) when performed correctly. Serum HCG tests may detect a pregnancy 6-14 days after ovulation, depending on the time of implantation. Urine HCG tests may detect a pregnancy 10 - 18 days after ovulation, depending on the time of implantation.
